Our group of friends enjoyed our stay in this comfortable b&b in the heart of Kenmare. Even though it was in the heart of town, it was nice and quiet on the street and we had no problem resting up after our adventures. Neil was very friendly and welcoming. After dropping off our bags it was a short walk to... More

Friendly host, nice clean room. Shower a little small in this room but OK. Room on the street which was a little noisy but quieted down later at night. Best part is the location in the town. Perfect! And close to everything. Worth coming too for sure.

We arrived early evening after driving in from Dublin/Midleton and easily found Virginia's as our stopping point en route to Dingle. Noel was incredibly welcoming and his recommendations of where to enjoy dinner and pubs in town made it a great visit. Kenmare is a small town of 3 streets and is quite enjoyable and easy to walk around and... More

The room had a comfortable king size bed, a sofa and coffee table,a tv and very clean bathroom with hot shower. We overlooked the Main Street in town which gave us access to pubs, shops, restaurants and lots of small, interesting... More

Very welcoming guesthouse. I would love to go back and stay there longer. The owner Neil was so kind. Very accommodating and wonderful location. I did not see a lift however, so keep in mind it's stairs if you have a lot of luggage. Though Neil did help us even with our little bit! I loved Kenmare and I really... More

There is much care taken here and it shows. The room was restful and comfortable.Very clean. Hot showers. Friendly owner. They are not serving breakfast, but no problem. There is a fab cafe right there called Mick and Jimmy'sthat served the best coffee we had in Ireland, (we were there 24 days!) plus great food.

My friend and I stayed here Saturday night. The location is super and within walking distance to all the local pubs and restaurants. Our room was spacious, clean and the bed was very comfortable, I had a great nights sleep. The host was really friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again if I visit Kenmare.

We had 3 rooms for our family's 1st trip to Ireland. Located right in the heart of Kenmare, we were able to enjoy much of what the town offered. Very clean, super comfy beds, showers with plenty of pressure and hot water, towel warmers, and homey appointments. Great new restaurant on ground floor, which had great breakfasts without leaving the... More
